I... I miss doing the podcast. There I said it. I hope you are all still safe out there wherever you are. Here's to random updates from things you'd forgotten about! -Matt

Ladies and gentlemen, I think it is probably fair to say now that The Gamerverse, as a site, has closed it's digital doors. As a vast majority, I ran the site by myself, with a few helpers towards the end adding a few additional articles, and with work and the cost of the site, I cannot afford to give it the attention it deserves. Thank you to all who stuck around and checked out the site. The Gamerverse may well return someday, strictly as a podcast or the like. Thank you again. Big Love - Matt


Merry Christmas all!! Side note: Would anyone be interested if I did a small podcast of my games of 2012?

Merry Christmas from Agent 47. Have you been naughty or nice this year?

I'm bored, so let's play "Guess that Game"!. Based on the following, what game am I talking about?

A brother and sister are playing in their tree house when it collapses, killing both of them. Both are taken to a place that is neither heaven nor hell. The sister is scared and runs away only to get lost. When the boy becomes conscious, he realizes his sister is gone, and goes out to search for her. When the brother and sister are reunited at the end, the end-game title screen shows their two dead bodies surrounded by flies.
